Nothing (Intet) in Copenhagen

Posted on Monday, November 16, 2020

Due to lockdown and general Corona restrictions I'm desperately sad not to be able to attend the premiere of the new production of my opera Nothing in Copenhagen's Royal Danish Opera. There is some talk of a stream which I will post details of on my twitter feed, so follow me there!

The production shots look amazing:

The Art of the Mandolin

Posted on Friday, November 13, 2020

Avi Avital's new album 'The Art of the Mandolin' features my three movement work 'Death is a Friend of Ours' written for the amazing combination of mandolin, guitar, harp, harpsichord and theorbo. As the comments and reviews have so far have never failed to mention - 'despite its title', it's a rather joyful and uplifting work. The piece really evokes a joy of living and for me you can only truly sense this joy if you are aware of how short-lived it is. Death isn't something we should be scared of or hide from, it's simply a part of life.
